About the NYYRC

The NYYRC is affiliated with and officially recognized by the New York State Young Republicans and the Young Republican National Federation, as well as the county, state and national Republican committees.  It brings together men and women aged 18 to 40 to discuss important policy issues, promote Republican principles and values, and help elect Republicans to office.  With hundreds of dues paying members throughout New York City and the United States, the Club engages in politics by:

  • Promoting Republican principles;
  • Supporting campaigns through volunteerism, community outreach, and social media;
  • Networking with politicians and other influential members of the party organization;
  • Having monthly socials at New York City bars and clubs;
  • Holding monthly meetings with speakers including candidates, authors, pundits, and more;
  • Attending fundraisers, leadership programs, and national conferences.

Founded in 1911, the NYYRC has a rich history of advocacy.  Our leadership works to ensure that the organization remains active and influential.
